Well the website doesn't have all the info yet, but I could wait to share the news of an amazing ceramic opportunity in 2010. Three extensive exhibitions with the best of European contemporary ceramics, workshops, lectures, masterclasses and artist residencies will take place on the island of Bornholm September 2010! Could it get much better?
From their website:
European Ceramic Context 2010 forms part of a biennial symposium for European contemporary glass and ceramics on the island of Bornholm in Denmark. Through comprehensive exhibitions, workshops, master classes, lectures and an artist in residence program, an opportunity will arise to discuss and present the best of contemporary European ceramics today. All 27 members of the European Union as well as Iceland, Norway and Switzerland will be participating.
European Ceramic Context 2010 is organizing a conference that will spotlight and discuss current themes in contemporary European ceramics. Lecturers and speakers will be among the leading theorists, curators and artists within the field of ceramics. The conference will take place at the Glass and Ceramic School on Bornholm.
European Ceramic Context 2010 is organizing a number of Master Classes, that will be open for enrollment to all professional ceramic artists who wishes to extend their knowledge or seek inspiration and challenge for their daily studio-practice. Master classes will be taught by accomplished instructors and professional artists.
European Ceramic Context is organizing a series of artist residencies in collaboration with Res Artis, a world wide network of artist-residencies and residential art centers. Selected artists will be given the time and space to develop a new project or body of work in ceramics. Artists will be working at Svaneke Gaarden, Møbelfabrikken and The Glass and Ceramic School for a period of approx. 6 weeks. During the residency artist will be asked to work on a given theme, to be presented at the ECC2010 conference at the end of their AiR session.
